Bend Your Brain



151 puzzles, tips, and tricks to blow [and grow] your mind!



Bend Your Brain contains hours of fun! It begins with a brief introduction explaining what Marbles (the brain store) is, what your brain is, and what the book is. Illustrations showing the different parts of the brain and their primary focus are helpful, but the pages are a tad busy. Perhaps the busyness is a purposeful act to stimulate the brain? Hmm…

The book consists of five types of puzzles—Visual Perception, Word Skills, critical Thinking, Coordination, and Memory.  And each puzzle type has varying degrees of difficulty—Mind-Warming, Mind-Stretching, Mind-Growing, Mind-Bursting, and Mind-Blowing, suitable for all ages. I love a challenge, so this book provided me hours of entertainment.

Yes, there are solutions in the back of the book. Thank goodness! I had to peek every now and then—but don’t tell anyone. ;)

4 stars – I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys puzzles and word games or needs a little brain-boost now and again.
